The Art Of Shooting Set Album Release
A basement with no windows saw the birth of songwriting that came from the overactive pelvis, and a love of the ugly and loud. Out of that Brooklyn dungeon arose The Art Of Shooting and their debut full-length Traveling Show, out April 27, 2010.
Traveling Show is an intensely personal work for The Art Of Shooting's singer/songwriter/guitarist Kelly Irene Corson, who growls, shrieks and hums with a vibrato vocally evocative of Siouxsie Sioux and Chrissie Hynde balanced with the tenderness and vulnerability of St. Vincent and Feist.
This album is a documentary nod to Corson's self- discovery of her truths. Lyrically and dynamically, Traveling Show is a raw look at life. "Truth till it can be humiliating," attests Corson. "It's empowering to show your imperfections as a point of pride in who you really are."
Traveling Show was produced by both Paul Mahajan (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, Liars, The National) in Brooklyn and Keith Souza (Battles, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Lightning Bolt) in Pawtucket, RI.
"This album has been a series of humbling miracles from beginning to end," sums Kelly Irene. "Though it's tested the ends of my patience, self-esteem, and faith not only in other people, but also in myself, at this moment, I'm as proud of it as I'll ever be."
TAOS also have a 5 song EP, Tyrant's Black Eyes, available through the Ace Fu Family Business label.
